We are the voice of Griffins everywhere.
Made up of people just like you — from every stage of life and profession — the Alumni Association Executive Council (AAEC) represents the needs and interests of alumni everywhere. At heart, we are a project-based working group dedicated to improving the alumni experience. The personality, focus, and composition of each project team varies widely, based on the nature of the work and the unique personalities of the individuals involved. Some projects require steady, consistent contributions, while others require only intermittent or periodic involvement. But no matter what the project, the goal is always the same: to connect alumni with each other and the School.
